Hello. I’m Aaron Burros, the Running Servant and wanted to share about my 50th Birthday Year Celebration Running of Marathons. I’m running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 weeks benefiting St. Jude Children Research Hospital. Please take an opportunity to listen to the podcast TRENDS, BENDS and OPPORTUNITIES and read the article AARON’S AUDACIOUS GOALS and donate (links are at end).

“This past weekend, I ran the Daufuskie Island Marathon And Ultra, a hidden gem of a race located at the South of South Carolina a ferry ride across from Hilton Head Island. It was a very rewarding race that’s flat as a pancake with breathtaking views and a course made up of everything but concrete — trail shoes only needed if it were to rain. I definitely will run it again.

Going into race day I was excited about running my first live race for my birthday after Houston Chevron Marathon and Aramco Half went virtual — now it’s my 50th marathon for the state of Texas — and the Louisiana Marathon rescheduled behind the Covid–19 pandemic.

The day began before sunrise catching the ferry over to the Daufuskie Island and warming up with volunteers singing Happy Birthday to me, giving me a cinnamon role from the local bakery sponsor and heating up in the tented runner’s village. The atmosphere was calm, the runners were poised and the stage was set for an awesome race for many.

After mile eleven, I took a terrible fall (If you haven’t read about my story, please click on link at the bottom to catch up to understand) and would hobble across the half way mark thirty minutes beyond the 2.5 hours in which I planned on in order to run 05:05:50 for the marathon. When you consider what I’ve been through to get to this point, that’s a little bit reaching for me ; but this course is laid out in such a way that the impossible becomes possible. Plus the weather was perfect with no humidity.

Runners on every level were hitting their goals.
For the second loop, I could only walk in order to finish. My goal was just a goal, but I wasn’t out there for a personal goal — I was out there for Aiden, a young boy I previously met at a marathon, and for Gabby, my two year old great niece who was diagnosed with a cancerous growth on her kidney along with all the other children with cancer and other childhood diseases. #IRunforAiden and #GettingItForGabby was my why regardless if I had to crawl across the finish line.

My pain was very uncomfortable to say the least. And while I can’t imagined the pain Aiden, Gabby and other young children go through daily from cancer, treatments and surgeries, I kept pushing through until I crossed the finish line.

There were only a few other marathoners who finished behind me while every ultra marathoner had finished ahead of me. Tracy Tate and I began together and she crossed several minutes after to be the final runner off the course. The volunteers treated us as if we were the top male and female finishers — thank you all for the excellent job. Continue to be audacious. Like Arnold, “I’ll be back.”.
